STARRY NIGHT STORIES
For Children & The Young At Heart

By D. B. Pacini-Christensen


Starry Night Stories is a collection of seven stories and one story-poem for children and young-at-heart adults. Shel Silverstein, the late, great iconic author of American children's books and wonderful songs, inspired the story-poem, Roxanne Lucie Winebrant. The fascinating characters in this generous 8.5 by 11 inches book will delight children and adults alike. Most of the text is Comic Sans 18-font bold. It is a popular font for visually impaired and dyslexic readers. It is also a font many young readers can read with ease. There are approximately 225 high quality color photographs and color art illustrations, many displayed as half-page or full-page images. The last story in this impressive collection, Uncle Bud's Christmas Secret, is a kindhearted and charming Christmas story. This captivating book is a perfect gift for children of all ages, and for adults who enjoy being enchanted.

Thank You

I have recently learned about Pexels, Pixabay, and Unsplash.

Zara Edwards
(Tonya Tacla: Photographer)

October 2018: My name is Zara Edwards. I am a fifteen-year-old high school sophomore. After school my favorite activity is drawing. Since I was little I have loved drawing, but I didn't take art seriously until the seventh grade. My favorite things to illustrate are video game and TV show characters, self-portraits, and some abstract art. My favorite medium is markers; however, I work with numerous mediums. This is my first opportunity to illustrate for a book, and I am very excited about it. Art is my hobby, but I would like to utilize it more when I'm older, by possibly becoming an architect.

The Brave Coyote


An Organization We Support



Pg. 266 -- Project Coyote



Project Coyote



Project Coyote is a national non-profit organization based in Northern California whose mission is to promote compassionate conservation and coexistence between people and wildlife through education, science, and advocacy. Their representatives, advisory board members and supporters include scientists, educators, ranchers, and citizen leaders who work together to change laws and policies to protect native carnivores from abuse and mismanagement, advocating coexistence instead of killing. They seek to change negative attitudes toward coyotes, wolves, and other misunderstood predators by replacing ignorance and fear with understanding, respect and appreciation.
